Leading their sheep astray

The image of sheep is a popular metaphor in Christianity. Jesus is portrayed as a shepherd, leading his flock into paradise. Believers are encouraged to be generous, kind, and meek, all qualities of good sheep. At the time the Bible was written, the profession of shepherd was common, and it's easy to understand how the romanticism of this job would appeal to the people of that period. But there is something ...

Iraqi militia torturing and killing gays

It's bad enough the situation is Iraq is a mess; now we have to deal with the knowledge the Iraqi military is engaging in some sick and twisted tactics to torture and kill homosexuals in the country: “A prominent Iraqi human rights activist says that Iraqi militia have deployed a painful form of torture against homosexuals by closing their anuses using ‘Iranian gum.’ …Yina Mohammad told Alarabiya.net that, ...

More exorcisms gone wrong

I wish everyone just stopped trying to exorcise demons out of people. It's an obviously very dangerous, and utterly pointless thing to do. Of course, you can't seem to get superstitious ignoramuses to sit and listen to reason. Now it looks like ten people will soon be going to jail over the death of Janet Moses, a New Zealand woman who drowned during one of these stupid curse-lifting ceremonies. The troop i ...

Jesus Camp in 9 minutes

If you've never seen Jesus Camp, here is a YouTube video with all the really crazy parts condensed into 9 minutes. I love the clapping kids when that gigantic woman says Harry Potter would have been stoned to death if he was living in the time of Jesus. Also scary is the guy who asks "How many of you would gladly give up your life for Jesus?" ...

Alberta is run by morons

I can't beat around the bush when it comes to Alberta and their education policy: moronic is too kind a word, but I'm working on toning down my swearing. Their government is proposing a new bill allowing parents to pull their children from discussions of evolution or homosexuality in public schools, and it's expected to pass. Parents who want their children to be sheltered from evolutionary fact, or from se ...

Orson Scott Card is poorly informed

Personally I'm pretty sick and tired of religious individuals commenting on atheism when they have absolutely no idea what it means to dis-believe in God. Let me assure you, religious readers, I am not an atheist because of an abusive or absent father (an idea so insultingly wrong I usually choose not to dignify it with an answer). I am also not an atheist because of some secret hatred or spurning from your ...

Can we trust religions to stay moderate?

Do you know why the fish is the ancient symbol of Christianity? Odds are you've never really thought about it, or considered it another oddity in the religion. However there was a time when the cross was not the official symbol of the Church. Instead, it was the fish (now often referred to as the "Jesus fish"). While they suffered prosecution at the hands of the Romans, many would use it as a symbol to dema ...

A Mormon who loves us

Religious people usually aren't our biggest fans. One of the reason is compared to believers, atheism represents a complete rejection of God, and this can often seem very threatening. It's one thing to choose a different God than them; it's quite another to say he doesn't exist at all. Well, not everyone feels that way, apparently. Here's a Mormon who likes atheists a lot. Here's a small quote from his arti ...
